Garry Meldrum in court over Gorbals 'fancy dress' rape

A man has appeared in court charged with raping a woman who was walking home from a fancy dress party.

Garry Meldrum, 24, is alleged to have attacked the 35-year-old woman in the Gorbals area of Glasgow on 27 October.

The woman, who was dressed as a bride in a white wedding dress and veil, was raped in a car park in Bridge Street.

Mr Meldrum, from Glasgow, appeared in private at the city's sheriff court where he made no plea or declaration and was remanded in custody.

He is due to appear in court again next week for full committal.
